Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am glad that I am able to contribute and be a part of this wonderful site (when I have and make the time to!)
Gravestones help us honor and remember our lost loved ones, and this site helps ensure that memory will carry on years from now even when the stones are weathered, worn, broken or forgotten... as unfortunately many already are. I am happy that I can help record what the stones look like now before they age even more.

I have found alot of useful information from this site when researching my family lines and hope the memorials I add and those I add photos to can do the same for others! I, fortunately, am close enough to be able to travel easily to most of my family graves, but understand that is not the case for many people. Even so, it is nice to be able to 'visit' them on this site at anytime and even find new discoveries of family members in places/cemeteries I did not know of.

At this point almost all of the memorials I have created are just from visiting cemeteries in my free time to record them on find a grave - so I would be more than happy to transfer them to family members willing to add-on and improve them!

I will do my best to make any suggested corrections and reply to any messages as quickly as possible regarding memorials that I have created. I normally and do not always get online regularly, nor do I check my email everyday (or even every week). Alot of times (especially in summer) I travel or get busy and/or am nowhere near a computer or internet for over a month. I would appreciate your patience , as I will be more than happy to add and correct any info once I am available to do so.

**the memorials I have added that do not have gravestone photos - I entered info from the photos I took - I just have not yet been able to get these photos onto my computer to add to the site. Hopefully can soon!

Thank you for your comments. My sister and I have photographed all of the cemeteries in Oceana Co. except for section 1 in Mt. Hope which we will finish this fall and we have also photographed all the cemeteries in Mecosta Co. except for finishing the largest one, Highland View. We have also photographed complete cemeteries in Charlevoix County and one on Mackinac Island, Michigan. We appreciate hearing from everyone who appreciates our work. Thank you again. Janet

Thank you for posting the information on Helen F Wilson Richards. I put new photos on her page. I tried to put them in order with the headstone first, cemetery second, her baby picture & so on, but I can't move them around. Maybe you have to do that. Thank you again,

Helen is my husband's grand aunt. I am going to do that to her husbands also.
